  • Revenue of €4.3 billion, up 49% compared to H1 2021
  • VAR of €1.4 billion, up 22% compared to H1 2021

  • Net debt / LTM Adjusted EBITDA of 3.0x at June 30, 2022


Jean-Marc Germain, Constellium’s Chief Executive Officer said, “I am very proud of the results our team delivered in the second quarter, including record VAR, record Adjusted EBITDA and strong Free Cash Flow generation. Demand remained strong across most end markets during the quarter, and our team continued to execute very well despite significant inflationary pressures. Both P&ARP and AS&I reported record Adjusted EBITDA as continued strength in packaging and industry demand more than offset continued weakness in automotive caused by the semiconductor shortage and other supply chain challenges. A&T reported very strong second quarter Adjusted EBITDA supported by a greater than 50% increase in aerospace shipments compared to the same quarter last year and continued strength in transportation, industry and defense (TID). Lastly, we generated Free Cash Flow of €60 million and reduced our leverage to 3.0x.” 

Mr. Germain continued, "Macroeconomic and geopolitical risks remain elevated and we expect inflationary pressures to continue, particularly for inputs like energy and regions more directly affected by the ongoing war in Ukraine. However, I am confident in our ability to continue to execute well through these challenging times. Based on our strong performance in the first half of this year and our current outlook for the second half which assumes no major deterioration on the geopolitical front, we are raising our guidance and now expect Adjusted EBITDA of €670 million to €690 million and Free Cash Flow in excess of €170 million in 2022. Following this, we expect our leverage to decline further by the end of the year. We remain focused on executing our strategy, driving operational performance, generating Free Cash Flow and increasing shareholder value.”
